Steve was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes some years ago. His attitude to his illness has been inspirational, he decided it wasn't going to beat him and he started to get fit. He started by getting involved with triathlons, training to improve his running, investing in some good cycling equipment and teaching himself to swim. His focus and determination were truly amazing, his acheivements many, in 2009 he swam the channel. In 2010 he completed the Zurich Ironman. He has competed in many events and raised a lot of money for charity along the way. He is a fantastic role model for others for what he has acheived both personally and for others.
